[August 24, 2008]  URBANA -- A multiple species grazing conference to help producers better manage forages, chemical use and costs will be at the Logan County Extension office on Sept. 13.

Hardware"The goals of the conference are to help producers increase income per acre, better utilize forages, decrease parasite loads, decrease predation of small ruminants and decrease chemical use to control undesirable weeds," said Dean Oswald, University of Illinois Extension animal systems educator. "An overarching theme of the conference is how co-grazing can work for producers."

Registration begins at 9 a.m., with the program running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Logan County Extension office is located at 980 N. Postville Drive in Lincoln.

Advance registration, due one week prior to the program, is $30 per person, with the second person from a farm charged $20. Late registration is $35 and $25. Registration checks, made out to the "University of Illinois," can be sent to Oswald at 480 S. Deer Road, Macomb, IL 61455, or the Logan County Extension office.

Online registration is also available.

For further information, contact the Logan County Extension office at 217-732-8289.
